The crystal spirit; a study of George Orwell by George Woodcock( Book )

60 editions published between 1966 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Crystal Spirit is a revealing look at the great writer and political thinker George Orwell, whose visionary work gave us the great anti-utopias of twentieth-century literature. Perhaps best known for his enormously successful novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, and for that other classic work of fiction, Animal Farm, Orwell's reputation rests as much upon his work as a critic of literature, of manners, of politics - in a word, of life. His candor, his penetration, his intellectual honesty, and his mastery of the plain style raised to the level of literature, account for his exceptional influence during his lifetime and up to the present day." "A close friend and colleague during the last decade of that remarkable writer's life, Woodcock was thereby uniquely qualified to delve into the complex personal history of the man. Interwoven with his own memories, the letters which Orwell wrote to him, and the published and unpublished recollections of other people who knew him, all against the political and literary background of Orwell's work, this intellectual biography is a general critique that traces the evolution of an original writer in his most productive years, and provides a sympathetic and penetrating analysis of his work."--Jacket

Gabriel Dumont : the Métis chief and his lost world by George Woodcock( Book )

"The struggle of the Metis of the Saskatchewan River against the government of Canada culminated in the Riel Rebellion of 1885 - an event of central importance in shaping almost all of the key polarities of Canadian history. If Riel provided the intellectual inspiration for the Rebellion, it was Gabriel Dumont who provided its strategy, and arguably its soul. Dumont, a leading figure in the Metis society of hunters along the South Saskatchewan, had been president of the short-lived local government, and became "Adjutant General of the Metis people" when a Provisional Government was declared in 1885. After the defeat of the Rebellion by the Canadian militia Dumont lived for several years in the United States, and was for some time a performer in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. In his last years he returned to his old home near Batoche (site of the final defeat of the Metis forces in 1885), where he died in 1906"--Jacket
